The Left Aren’t Open Minded? Wha?!!

Posted on January 18, 2013 1:00 pm

According to a survey, liberals are much more likely than conservatives to block someone for having an opposing viewpoint. It’s kind of an open secret that liberals have a lot more problems dealing with opposing viewpoints than conservatives. A lot of that is because even though we conservatives are more numerous, liberals tend to dominate the media and we can never escape their viewpoints. This actually makes us stronger, as we know what liberals are thinking and why and can directly refute their ideas. Liberals, on the other hand, tend to just shut out other viewpoints and never understand them, just reacting to them screeching things like “racist!” — as fear and anger are common reactions to things people don’t understand. This is why they’re often surprised they’re ideas (like gun control) aren’t more popular as they think they own the argument when all they’ve done is cover their ears whenever the other side speaks.

The core of the left’s arguments are weak. That’s how we can win in this country (and do on some issues like guns). We just have to focus on bringing are ideas directly to the American people and not even bothering with the left who don’t even want to listen.

    I think this goes back to the idea that conservatives think liberals are dumb, while liberals think conservatives are evil. We think our principles are self-evident; they think we should be shot at dawn.

    My wife and I have both lost friends after various Facebook posts. Almost invariably, they are liberals. I have only unfriended one person due to a political statement, which was the guy who said he thought Romney would look good in the scope of his deer rifle. #Tolerance

    The number is probably higher because they’re also more likely to be liars.

    The First Amendment clearly states that you have the right to an abortion, and the right to say anything you want as long as it fits with liberal agenda. Any speech or action that doesn’t agree with liberal agenda is a “hate crime.” Liberal education taught me that.

    To paraphrase Red Green…I’m a liberal, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.
